On August 25th, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Organic Act, establishing the National Park Service as an agency of the Department of Interior. Though President Wilson is known more for his foreign policy (WWI took place during his administration,) he left an enduring conservation legacy. Aside from The NPS, Wilson also established several national parks including Hawaii Volcanoes, Rocky Mountain and the Grand Canyon.
